Connections to an FTP folder opening in Internet Explorer instead of Windows Explorer

Hello,

I've got a Windows 7 Pro machine which has a shortcut to an FTP resource.  Launching this shortcut should return a prompt for the resource and open the folder in Windows Explorer.

Instead, it keeps opening Internet Explorer.  How can I change this so that it uses Windows Explorer instead?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Create shortcut to "explorer ftp://192.168.1.1".
Replace 192.168.1.1 with your ftp address.

No.  That does not work.  It's an invalid path/command.

It's works great for me!
Go to properties of your shortcut and change field "Object" from
ftp://192.168.1.1
to
explorer ftp://192.168.1.1
